In parallel fashion, the United States entered the European theatre only in the last and determinant phase of World War II. Britain entered the main European theatre only when the (Napoleonic) war had reached its final and decisive stage. Its direct military presence acted to inhibit any other continental power from attempting to take France’s place in the continental power structure and reinforced the legitimacy of Britain’s claim to a dominant say in peace negotiations. The clatter Of machine guns spit their hate, as landing craft nose in to grate Against the shingle to disgorge their human load who wait to charge Into oncoming deathly hail, but never faltering, nerves taut, pale Faced, leaping down into the cold wet breakers, seeking firm foothold. – Unknown There has been opposition to every innovation in the history of man, with the possible exception of the sword. Both Hitler and Stalin had dual strategies towards the Christian Churches – manipulating them when it was convenient to do so, but humiliating and persecuting them whenever they looked like a rival authority or power. Kissinger senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, has set himself in his new book God and Gold. Then faintly, through the deafening din, an alien sound is heard, the thin Melodious wailing cry of highland pipes, though bullets fly Around him, he is unscathed still. Political religion could seldom break completely free of the traditional religion that preceded it; much of its energy was devoted either to demolishing the old structure of Christianity, or to taking it over and feeding off it, as a parasite feeds off its host. The flummery of Nazism – its cult of martyrs, invented ceremonies, and of course Führer-worship – was, for all its tawdriness, no side-show; rather, it was an expression of the fundamental cultic character of the movement, without which it could not have bound so many hearts and minds together. His genius was an intuitive sense of the mushiness, the character flaws, the weakness masquerading as morality that was in the hearts of the statesmen who stood in his path. As it spotted our speck of a vessel And thought how men must be at peace, With forty-eight million warriors killed And no plan to surrender or cease, Four years after the March on Rome, the headquarters of the Italian secret police contained only one working phone line. At its best, the book gives fascinating little glimpses into the poverty and backwardness of the country Mussolini ruled. – Mignon McLaughlin The great of this world are often blamed for not doing what they could have done. Tony Church composed this verse, partly because Bill, piper to Brigadier Lord Lovat, embarked for the D-Day Landings from the Hamble river.

It was the Italian fascists who coined the term “totalitarian,” but their state never approached this perverse ideal. The sighing surf on sand abounds, and seabirds call, the only sounds At break of summers day, and yet, within the hour men will have met Their destiny as war’s shrill chatter ends this tranquil scene. Only on the surface has the strategic missile race reflected competition between the United States and the Soviet Union; the real struggle is between the US Air Force and its archrival the US Navy. Struggling forward, arms raised clear to gain refuge ahead, so near And yet seeming so far away as spiteful guns traverse and spray The killing ground that lies ahead, already littered with the dead And dying who would never see this bitter, bloody victory. Either Britain or America — or both — emerged victorious from the war of the Spanish succession, the war of the Austrian succession, the Seven Years’ war, the French revolutionary and Napoleonic wars, the first world war, the second world war and the Cold War. Both shoring and shielding involve using materials to provide support and stability and prevent a cave in. Appeasers turned one blind eye to the realities of Nazi rule, but many more people on the British Left shut both eyes to the horrors of Stalinism, and they took much longer to open their eyes. – Georg Christoph Lichtenberg Fanaticism consists in redoubling your effort when you have forgotten your aim. short mens trench coat gabardine trench coat silk trench coat hooded trench buy winter coats trench coat juniors mens long trench coat cheap womens coats winter long coats for women lace trench coat raincoat womens black peacoat grey mac coat pleated trench coat womens winter dress coats ladies coats with hoods short raincoat plus size womens trench coat long pea coat women quilted trench coat summer coats for women black leather trench coat women classic short trench coat gray trench coat men short trench coat black and white trench coat ruffled trench coat pea coat women sale ladies overcoats belted trench coat men
